    • nothing new always been that way for 25+yrs now i had voip lines with NTL back in the late 90's which is why a real trucall box or a handset with real truecall software in it is SO good.   on average i get about 25-35 of these calls a month NONE get thru  the ones that spoof UK or mobile numbers are still screened are easily dealt with the truecall system   if they are real, the only thing they have to do is speak and you get an alert ring to listen to whom call with the option to accept or ZZapp them. once zapped that number never gets thru again.   its worthy to note that the scammers only ever use disconnected numbers, or fake numbers after a known local UK dialling code well the truecall software already knows these numbers as it gets the same databases the scammers use. if the number doesnt come up on the fake/disconnected list, it also then checks if the UK number is listed active UK and will auto put people thru   very clever little device worth every penny and mine is from 2006 when i joined CAG.
    • No the info on comms log isn't quite right,   I hadn't worked since Xmas due to bereavement but I wasn't staying in Somerset since the Xmas. The comms log is very deceitful indeed and after I had finished evaluating it fully I came to the conclusion MB are very manipulative, they lie, cheat and twist the truth, but it only takes the slightest slip up and everything crumbles.   You see in order for MB to have taken any further steps they have to be entitled to take them. So when they lie and try to deceive the truth prevails 😊, so to send a copy of a Default Sums Notice dated 15/1/17 that doesn't exist on the log anywhere and Ive never had the original and then fail to include one in the SAR that is listed on the log as generated on 18/1/17 (not had this one either)  doesn't the consequence of that 1 act prevent them from any further action until the notices are served    86 (e) Notice of default sums (5)If the creditor or owner fails to give the debtor or hirer the notice under this section within the period mentioned in subsection (2), he shall not be entitled to enforce the agreement until the notice is given to the debtor or hirer.       But I am reducing the complaint and sticking to basics

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi

 

Have been getting inundated with phone calls from Cabot Financial over the past week - 10 days couldn't understand why - until a lovely welcome letter arrived on friday stating that the have been assigned my alleged Credit Card Debit.

 

This Credit Card Debit iswith Barclaycard and we managed to get the charges back but still left a balance, however Barclaycard never ever sent us a copy of the CCA that we requested they had only sent us a copy of T & C which Ida had confirmed where unencforceable, did send a letter to BC stating this but they were adament they had complied....that was away back in June 2009.

 

Never heard a dickybird from them since June 2009 until last Friday when a letter from cabot arrived not quite sure how to reply Cabot regarding this alleged account as BC have not provided a enforceable CCA.

 

Can anybody help comply a letter to Cabot regarding this alleged account.

 

SHould I send another CCA request with £1 P.O. to Cabot

 

They are asking me to contact them to arrange a payment plan

Id reply with a letter along these lines....

The account is in dispute , no debt is acknowledged, therefore they can not sell the account on to someone else...

As such, it is almost certainly protected by litigation privilege.

I am aware it is an absolute pain,

with the ping pong with Barclaycard and DCAs..

.......the letter GeoffreyAlby indicates is the best to keep using....

 

 

.......if it is any help I am 18 months down the road with BC and DCAs still no agreement

,complain to OFT/FOS,

 

 

how long since you paid anything or acknowledged the debt???????????????????...

........you will probably reach the stage when BC ask YOU to prove why you should not pay them even though they cannot produce an agreement,

 

 

they really have a neck and still get away with ignoring the OFT/FOS guidelines,

we will win,i

n the mean time keep sending the account in dispute letters...............FS

Hi

 

Have been getting inundated with phone calls from Cabot Financial over the past week - 10 days couldn't understand why - until a lovely welcome letter arrived on friday stating that the have been assigned my alleged Credit Card Debit.

 

This Credit Card Debit iswith Barclaycard and we managed to get the charges back but still left a balance, however Barclaycard never ever sent us a copy of the CCA that we requested they had only sent us a copy of T & C which Ida had confirmed where unencforceable, did send a letter to BC stating this but they were adament they had complied....that was away back in June 2009.

 

Never heard a dickybird from them since June 2009 until last Friday when a letter from cabot arrived not quite sure how to reply Cabot regarding this alleged account as BC have not provided a enforceable CCA.

 

Can anybody help comply a letter to Cabot regarding this alleged account.

 

SHould I send another CCA request with £1 P.O. to Cabot

 

They are asking me to contact them to arrange a payment plan

 

I think the ruling last November 2009 by Scottish Sheriffs about the claimant either having to show or "aver" they have an enforceable CCA might protect you? - see Ida's earlier thread on this.

 

Funnily enough I've had exactly the same from Cabot very recently - loads of recent calls out of the blue to my (company) mobile. I spoke to them and they actually have an address which I haven't ever lived at. They won't tell me who the OC is and claim I owe THEM (not an OC) the money - but won't give me any more details unless I give them a current address - and a non business phone number (AYE - RIGHT!).

 

I have refused to give them this - and have told them any OC should know where I live - but they say they'll just continue to ring my company mobile unless I give them other contact info. However I'm a bit worried of ending up with a CCJ (or Scottish equivalent) since any court papers sent to a wrong address won't get to me - a tactic seemingly frequently adopted by Bryan Carter/Frederickson/Egg?

 

Does anyone know if Cabot use the same tactics?

 

I know I could probably get any such judgement set aside if they use a wrong or out of date address - but what about my refusal to give them an up to date address and home phone number? Would this prejudice my chances of getting it set aside?

 

Would the Nov 2009 ruling on them "averring" they have an enforceable agreement perhaps stop it going to court at all?

 

I've also got a couple of older debts fast approaching the Scottish 5 year SB date. - and this might relate to one of these. Would any court judgement before the 5 years are actually up prejudice this SB protection even though I've made no payments or admitted the debts for (nearly) 5 years at present? I intend to sit it out until after 5 years if I can, but Cabot might screw this up if they act fast enough.

 

If Cabot are contacting loads of new debtors then it might suggest they've bought up some old (unenforceable?) debts. Anyone else add weight to this theory? Who was your OC?

 

Any advice please as to how I should proceed with Cabot right now?

Hi BF

 

Not too sure how you should tackle this one,

hopefully somebody more experienced could chip in.

 

 

My OC is Barclaycard.

 

I just won a case in the scottish courts in September

part of my defence was regarding the new scottish Act of Sederant law for the Sheriff Court

where the creditor has to aver to there being a enforceable CCA

 

 

my case was against Creation Finance and they did not aver in their particulars of claim on the citation

 

 

so with lots of help from Seriouslyfedup,

 

 

Ida on here we sent them away with their tail between their legs.

Cheers

AFW

Can't comment on how cabot work.#

 

the 'averrment' doesn't stop them as still most people don't respond to the court papers but it gives you a complete defense up here.

 

yes court action before the 5 years would stop a debt becoming SB'd.

 

I would just ignore the calls if you can, some mobiles you can automatically get the equivalent of call barring i.e. my phone i can just block a number that i have recieved or missed a call from.

 

If they have a completly wrong address then as long as they cannot link it to a correct one then it shouldnt show on your credit report

Husband is home now and a bit better than he was...

I explained above BC had sent me T & C's for my request for a CCA and Ida kindly advised me this was unenforceable..

....that was some time ago and now cabot are chipping in

I did send a letter to Cabot explaining this and they did reply putting account on hold unitl they could send CCA.

 

Well we have now received a letter with a few photo copies from BC which I shall post up for you all to see,

inspect and give me your valuable opinion as

now cabot are reallly going to bombard me as BC will obviously tell them they have sent me a copy of my CCA.

 

Below is copies of what we received:

 

Page 1

Page 2

Page 3

Page 4

Page 5

Page 6

Page7

 

Can anybody please help me write a letter of reply to BC and Cabot as at the present time my head is not up to complying a letter too much worry my head just spins and doesn't know when to stop.

 

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

 

Cheers

Thot I would pitch in here as BC have just assigned me to Carboot as well. Like everyone I got the usual "Welcome to Cabot" letter, so by reply they got a letter stating that a photopied letter with BC's address etc on it and my name typed in really wasnt a letter of assignment - particularly as it came from Carboot and not from BC. They also got told that the account was in serious dispute as

  1. the last time I CCAd them they sent me a computer dump of T&Cs with my name and address at the top - basically the docs cited above, but they put my name on it.
  2. the previous time they did actually come up with the application form (I know its an application form because it said so at the top) but with not a single prescribed term on it (though it did have my sig on it). Remember BC were so impressed with this bit of paper that they sent me the pile of rubbish referred to above later on.

Having assured me that they would be looking to collect, they flogged me off to Carboot. Thankfully no phone calls and no reply - at the time of writing this - to my letter, but I will keep you all up to date if things should move along.

Innumerable numbers afw (I think we could call you INA FW? Or just INA) Ida's advice is good - basically its what I have done.

Hope everyone has a really god Christmas and I wish consternation to our enemies

Hi

 

Sent letter to Cabot and BC that Ida posted in post #13 above according to to Royal Mail site BC got theirs but no sign of any signature for Cabots copy.

 

Would it be advisable to send another copy or wait and see, a bit scared incase they didn't get it and take court action.

 

Like the abbreviations SFU - INA Af or INA sounds good.

 

Would like to change my name on here, but don't think its allowed. It has innumerable numbers but at the time of registration my brain was doing henners and I couldn't think of anything else.

 

Hope everyone had a Great Festive Season and Ida hope you have stopped your digging, however don't put they shovels away as I hear its on its way back soon.

 

Cheers

If you sent this with proof of delivery, then I think you would be within your rights to ask why it doesnt appear to have been delivered, or at least not signed for.

From the dark recesses of my mind I seem to remember that MBNA enjoyed a certain notoriety for not signing for their mail. I am not sure how that ever resolved itself, or if it did. BUT, if Cabot are doing the same - just refusing to sign - then sending another would be good money after bad. I would start off with the post office - something must have happened to the letter - either Cabot took it without a sig, or its in a sorting office. In the latter event, you would have evidence that you tried to make contact and the failure was down to them.

Following my earlier post (below) Cabot have now written to me at my current address - but give no details other than their own account no - nothing about who the OC is or the amount owed. Since I have never dealt with them then surely I can assume this has been sent in error and just ignore it until things get heavier? I only have 4 months to go until one account is SB - if it's this one they're chasing up and I ignore their letters will this prevent me from being protected by SB?

why dont you ask them for a copy of the agreement, as even post Waksman at the very least it would have to say who the parties to the agreement were - you and whoever the OC might have been. It might be worthwhile adding - "if you are considering court action" - as, if they do go for court action they would need to at least aver that it exists. Remember Cabot work out of England - whoever answers your letter probably wont know this funny Scottish requirement. Either way, it seems to me that you cant lose - they fess up they dont have this (so complete defence) or come up with something (so you see who the OC was, what its all about and what they have got).

My understanding is that the only two things that can prevent an account becoming SB is that you acknowledge it (and I think this means financially - ie make a payment - so in your letter make very clear that the one pound you enclose IS ONLY THE FEE CHARGED FOR THE COPY OF THE DOCUMENT AND NOTHING ELSE - I got a letter from Cabot about a BC account for which i sent £1 for a copy of the agreement and they have credited it to the account) or court action. I dont really see replying to a letter as acknowleding a debt, especially if the tenor of your letter is "I dont know what you are on about". Might be an idea to include "I do not acknowledge any debt to your company" and "without prejudice".

Good advice - thanks!

 

I was thinking of doing this - but only after they get tougher - and I suspect they will send a few more "nice" letters first - hopefully not too quickly or often so the SB period can kick in first.

 

Any disadvantage in waiting like I plan to do?

no obvious reason. About the only thing that i could think of is that while they have to aver that the agreement exists, its almost certainly the case (at the very least) that many of them take court action knowing full well they dont have this. If their bluff is called they just abandon. Asking for a copy now would winkle them out if they dont have it - on the other hand they might put your £1 to the account, say that this is acknowledgement (its not - its the prescribed fee for a copy, so if they put it to your account that was their doing, and not yours) so the clock for SB starts all over again. Hard one. I would wait and see and act accordingly. If they go to court, I think that resets the SB clock anyway - but you could then get a copy of what they have through the court anyway. My guess is that they will make a lot of noise/ threats and then run away.

Big Debtor, I would wait and see what they send you next. the least someone can reasonably expect in a letter saying they owe money is where the debt originates from. Without that its's only fit for the bin. Been dealing with them for a couple of years now. They deal with thousands of accounts and yours is just one of many they are chasing. They are a big machine and don't normally turn round fast. Unless you owe a very large amount its unlikely they'll move fast, as they'll need to use a Scottish legal firm and that eats into their profits, especially if you defend.

 

Cheaper for them to try and use their traditional means of persuasion by bombarding your phone with calls every day from different phone numbers. Don't speak or answer the phone calls ever.

Thanks for that. They only have my work number and went away with a flea in their ear as they kept phoning it - and we have a computer record of all incoming calls - so we told them we would report them for harassmanet. My own phoine is ex directory anmd they don't have my own moblie number either - so their only option is to write. The debt approaching SB in May is around £11k - so pretty big and probably quite high priority for them to chase? I have not shown it in my signature below in case it alerted anyone to try to trace me.

 

If I need to ask for details (if things get heavy) then I was first of all going to do a "I don't know you from Adam - please supply all relevant info to prove you have been assigned a debt in my name by the OC" letter. Since this WON'T produce a signed agreement copy then, from what I've read, a CPUTR 2008 letter is better than just a CCA request with £1 - which would just get the reconstituted guff in return. Can I go straight for this? Does CPUTR 2008 apply in Scotland?

Well

I spoke too soon. Somehow they've got my phone number despite it being ex directory an dhave sent details of what they are chasing, which is an old Barclaycard debt which CSL gave up on about a year ago. They claim they've bought it but predictibly have not sent any evidence to prove it.

They rang me 4 times yesterday and when I said I would not discuss things by phone they said they would continue ringing until I did discuss it.

I plan to send the following letter. Any suggestions/comments as to how to improve it are most welcome:

Dear Sirs

Ref:− Your letter of XX December 2010. Your Ref xxxxxxxxxxxx

 

I do not acknowledge any debt to your company

I refer to your letter dated dd/mm/yy and now formally request, under the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (specifically regulations 5 and 6) and the Office of Fair Trading Guidance on debt collection that you confirm whether you currently hold or have ever held a properly Executed Credit Agreement pertaining to the above account and if so please forward a copy to me by return.

If YOU DO NOT have a signed, properly executed Consumer Credit Act Agreement pertaining to myself, then I require written confirmation by return (CPUTR 2008 reg 5 and 6).

I understand that under the Consumer Credit Act, creditors are unable to enforce an agreement if they fail to comply with such a request.

Also, since you are a Debt Collection Agency, I would also ask that you supply a signed true copy of the executed deed of assignment for the above referenced agreement. This is an obligation, whether you are the original creditor or not, under section 189 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

Non-compliance with my request is a criminal offence under the above Act and will result in a report being submitted to the relevant statutory authorities.

In summary, I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THIS DEBT AND THEREFORE REQUIRE YOU TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS BY PROVIDING THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTATION BEFORE I CORRESPOND FURTHER :

1.True copy of original credit agreement

2.Statement of account

3.Copy of the executed deed of assignment from the original creditor

4.Fair Processing Notice.

As you are aware, a credit agreement that is not properly documented and signed by the customer is totally unenforceable under the CCA and therefore is a complete defence to any court claim that is issued.

Take note at this stage, that any legal action you may contemplate will be both vigorously defended and contested.

Further to the above, please ensure that any contact by yourselves or any agent or associated company or organisation is made in writing only to the above address or by e-mail. Telephone calls and personal visits will not be accepted and viewed as harassment.

As this account is now in dispute, I would also draw your attention to The Banking Code section 13.6:-

We may give information to the Credit Reference Agencies about personal debts you owe us if:

·The Amount Owed is Not in Dispute.

The Office of Fair Trading provided a Code of Guidance that is in relation to Debt Collection: OFT 664 Response to consultation paper and final guidance on unfair business practices dated July 2003

Deceptive and/or Unfair Methods-

2.8 Examples of unfair practices are as follows:-

k. Not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt.

If you continue in your pursuance of this account I will have no other alternative than to report you to both The Information Commissioner and The Office of Fair Trading (OFT).

Furthermore, I shall submit a Consumer Credit Act 1974 complaint to the OFT upon the basis that you have failed to comply with the OFT's direction of 5 April 2006 and are therefore not a 'fit and proper person' to hold a consumer credit licence under the 1974 Act.

If you do not understand what this means then I would recommend you seek appropriate independent legal advice.

Yours faithfully
